A HOLIDAY to Spain could be just around the corner as lockdowns are lowered and air bridges are considered.
However, social distancing measures are likely to remain in place – which may be hard in some tourist areas.
Beaches across Spain are looking at introducing new regulations to ensure tourists remain safe, such as drones and technology analysing crowd levels, as well as sunbathing 'zones' and caps on visitors.
Thankfully, there are a number of hidden beaches across Spain which remain a secret, only known by locals where you can avoid large crowds.
From Ibiza to Menorca, many of them are tucked away through forests and off the beaten track.
We've rounded up the best locations you can take the family next on holiday without the busy beaches.
Cala Pedrosa, Costa Brava
Translating as "stony cove" in Catalan, it is an 800m walk from the main road to get to in, close to the border of France.
Many opt for a boat to get to it due to the rocky terrain, but once there, don't expect to see many other people at the shingle beach.
latja Illetes, Formentera
Often declared one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, it is compared to similar beaches in the Maldives or the Caribbean.
It's a 30 minute walk from the main path, but once down there, make the most of the local cafe selling snacks and settle in with very few crowds.
Cala de Algaiarens, Menorca
Tourists up for a challenge can visit this beach which is down a number of rugged slopes so isn't one for families with young kids.
Costing €4 to enter, being on private property, the white-sandy stretch is worth the walk so you can avoid the other busy beaches in the area.
Calo des Moro, Majorca
While busier in the peak season, avoiding the summer months it becomes much quieter.
There aren't any facilities there but the water is calm and shallow to paddle in.
Cala d’en Serra, Ibiza
Popular with locals, Cala d’en Serra is just a 30 minute drive from Ibiza Town but without the tourists.
There are also villas near the sandy stretch if you want to make the most of the beach during your holiday.
Cala Llentrisca, Ibiza
Another Ibiza favourite, don't expect to see anyone in this small fishing cove.
Walk a bit further along and you will spot the famous famous fishermen's huts too.
Playa de Guayedra, Gran Canaria
One of the few beaches in Gran Canaria with palm trees, Playa de Guayedra is best visited in the evening for the stunning sunset over the horizon.
While it may seem too stony at first, keep walking and you'll find secluded stretches of sand.
Playa de la Granadella, Costa Blanca
Another local beach, Playa de la Granadella has pine forest trees for shelter and a snack shack for a quick bite.
Other than that, the beautiful white sand is best to pull up a rug and relax on for the majority of the day.
